Discussing death is pretty taboo, but that doesn't stop most of us from making preparations for our demise. If you want to be buried lavishly, you better be setting aside some serious cash. To get a better idea, here are the five most expensive coffins and cemeteries out there.

1. The Xiao En Center Casket

This casket, which is valued at $36,400, features fine mahogany wood and hand-painted artistic accents.

2. Zsa Zsa Gabor's Casket

In 2011, this 24-karat gold plated casket was made for Zsa Zsa Gabor, although the Hungarian-born actress did not pass away until 2016. It was worth approximately $40,000 at the time.

3. Santa Barbara Cemetery

Referred to as "the best last place," this California cemetery, which was built in 1782, is known for its scenic nature. It costs $83,000 to own a place for cremation in this exclusive cemetery.

2. The Malaysian 14-Karat Gold Coffin

This casket costs as much as $217,000 due to the fact that it is made up entirely of 14-karat gold, and has been featured at a coffin exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

1. Forest Lawn Memorial Park

Legendary singer Michael Jackson is buried in this privately owned cemetery located in Glendale, California, so it's really no surprise that the value of the most expensive burial plot in this park is $825,000.
